Celebrating Summerset’s Frontliner Day 2024

March 22nd is Frontliner Day, Summerset’s annual celebration day recognising the staff working in our villages. You can read why they’re so special on our live gratitude wall.

What is a frontliner?

A frontliner is anyone who works in a village and interacts with Summerset residents daily – our wonderful caregivers, nurses, diversional and recreational therapists, kaitiaki, office staff, property and gardening teams, activities coordinators, kitchen/café staff, housekeepers and those working in our laundries. 

It takes many skilled and dedicated people to create an amazing retirement village, and even more to make it a home. From providing care to cooking tasty food, designing lovely gardens, organising activities and so much more. Our frontliners really do it all!

This year, to say thank you, we’ve made a gratitude wall in each village for staff, residents and families to share heartfelt messages of thanks with our frontliners. We’ve also created a virtual gratitude wall to give remote families and friends an opportunity to share heartfelt messages of thanks with our frontliners.
